Being an Interior Design student has been rough for many reasons. One of them is having to suffer through peer evaluations. Some people can just be darn right rude! Or perhaps it is that I am just to0 sensitive, we'll just deem it up to being a combination of the two...But leaning more towards the people are just rude side ;). Let me give you an example, we had to do a presentation a couple weeks back on a certain career field within interior design where our peers evaluated us on lots of different categories like: if we looked professional, if we said "umm" too much, or if we made eye contact with our audience. Well to my astonishment a couple people in my class docked me points for my outfit choice! We were suppose to dress professionally not I work in Washington D.C. and I am to confine within the all navy or all black pant suit. What was going through my head was naturally I wanted to look cute, public speaking is not my forte in the least so I thought dressing cute would help me feel good. What I wore was a black circle skirt-knee length with a leopard backwards cardi, tan jacket, and black patent kitten heels. Now to me that screams creative professional right? I mean come on we are in a creative major, and where does it say that dressing professional means that you can't be fashionable? (Now can't you see where the sensitivity comes into play)?! Maybe I should just go with the saying, "haters goin' hate" to make myself feel better.
What do you guys think? Professional?
